Sub : The Short  story of Jayalalithaa and Shasikala Natarajan

Ref :  Here is an engrossing story of two ladies whose names became hyphenated. Nobody could ever think of either of them in isolation.
INDIA TV.

Jayalalithaaa was born on 24 February 1948, at Melukote, in Pandavapura taluka, Mandya district, then in Mysore State. Born in a Tamil Iyengar Brahmin Family ...

This story is full of love, affection, commitment, emotional blackmail and betrayal. A complete package for any Bollywood blockbuster.


Here we are talking about Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalaithaa and her alter ego Sasikala Natarajan.

The world was shocked when news broke out that Jayalalitha had expelled her companion for more than two decades Sasikala Natarajan from the party and had asked her relatives to move out of her residence where they were staying for years as family members.


So what was the real story? Why the relationship of around three decades got soured so much that Jaya had to expel her most trusted lieutenant and soul sister Sasikala?

Let's go back to the time when Sasikala was a frustrated housewife who was fond of movies and always dreamt of living like superstars.

Her husband R Natarajan  was working as a Public Relations officer in Tamil Nadu government  on temporary basis. He was working closely with the then District Collector of Cuddalore V S Chandralekha, IAS, who in turn was very close to the then Tamil Nadu CM M G Ramachandran.


MGR was very close to his co-star Jayalalithaa and was seen as grooming her as his political heir. Impressed with Jayalalithaa's crowd pulling capabilities, MGR appointed Jayalalithaa as propaganda secretary of his party AIADMK .

As Sasikala was interested in films, she chose the business of video renting in order to earn some more bucks. She also bought a video camera and started shooting marriages in her locality.

That was the time when she urged her husband to speak to the  IAS officer for shooting a video film of Jayalalithaa. The IAS officer Chandralekha was obliged to Sasikala because she had agreed to look after her son Abhijeet.

Chandralekha introduced Sasikala to jayalalithaa and the two ladies struck an instant rapport. The rest, as we say, is history.

THE STORY ENDS.

For over three decades, Sasikala lived in the shadows of the late Jayalalithaa. As she now looks to step out and gain control over the AIADMK, her family, once loathed by Jayalalithaa and viewed with suspicion by others in the party, could prove the biggest hurdle.
